The girls will love it. This is the first Sanrio Hello Kitty Town out of Japan, but expect nothing lesser than interactive activities surrounding the Hello Kitty theme! Black Wonder is one of their save-Hello-Kitty-and-Dear-Daniel activity that uses sensor technology to enhance the fun experience – we love the uber-cute characters when they are in action.

On the other hand, at Wishful Studio, kids can create their very own Hello Kitty themed souvenirs, get a lovely manicure or play dressing up as their favourite character for a memorable photo moment. How sweet is that!
